I am so extremely excited to announce my newest brain child: Natural Herbal Living Magazine!
If you follow me on my Facebook page you may have been hearing a little bit about this magazine here and there, but here I am, making a public announcement. This wonderful resource for budding herbalists IS happening and will be available online and as a news stand app on September 1st.
This all started out, as many ideas do, with my husband and I talking after the kids went to bed, about technology. My husband was sharing with me this new popular online tech magazine that had a completely novel concept. This e-zine published two issues a month, with six articles each. These articles were written by some of the top authors in the field and focused on quality content, not advertising. When you go to the book store and buy a magazine you are usually paying $6-8 for a 100 page magazine that is full of ads! It is difficult, at best, to find the two articles listed on the cover that you actually want to read. You are paying these magazine publishers to push advertising on you.
This new type of e-zine is completely different. Instead of publishing hundreds of pages of advertising, we are publishing a high quality, content loaded, educational, and entertaining herbal e-zine advertising free.
About Natural Herbal Living Magazine
One of the things I have found wanting in a self-guided herbal education is one resource that really digs down deep and enables budding herbalists to build a relationship with the plants on a deeply personal level. Natural Herbal Living magazine will be that resource for the blossoming herbalist as well as for those who have been working with herbs for years.
Our vision is to create a web based magazine that focuses on one specific herb a month. We will go into great detail about the herb’s uses and benefits, its growth and harvesting practices, and will include many recipes that harness the herb’s potential. We will also discuss how the changing seasons are intrinsically linked to the plant world along with a wealth of other fantastic information that all herbalists should know.
Much of this information is not commonly found in one comprehensive resource. We aim to remedy that.
We will deliver two issues a month packed full of useful content. A one month subscription includes both issues, and will be only $4
Herb Box Subscription
In addition to the magazine, subscribers will have the ability to order an herb box. This box will contain all the ingredients you need to make the recipes featured in the magazine. This will give you the opportunity to get your hands on the herbs and experiment with them. You will learn to make tisanes (herbal teas), salves, tinctures, herbal elixirs and more! You will have the opportunity to work with flower essences and essential oils. The great thing about the box is you don’t have to go scrounge for ingredients, they will be right there at your door at the beginning of every month.
This will give you the opportunity to not only connect with the herbs on an intellectual level, but on a physical level as well.
September is our launch month!
